Variables under wrong type


Recommended Posts

I'm still getting more odd behaviour I can't understand. This is nothing to do with the recently discussed '%xx%' issue that Stan posted a conclusion about yesterday. I've been baffled to find that I'm not being offered the use of a named variable that I've already used in another command in that same macro. When I look a little closer, I discover that it's because it's being shown under the wrong type.

 

For example I had this command in place to enter a reading into a box:

 

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): %ElecMeter%<TAB>

That was specified as an Integer variable.

 

But when I tried to add another command using ElecMeter, it didn't exist under Integer but under Text Variables.

 

Any feedback before I report this as another bug please? In particular, I recall this sounds similar to a problem raised by Scasper recently? In the absence of any 'Bugs reported' list from ISS, I don't want to duplicate bug submissions, but neither do I want to let any fall through the cracks.

Can you post a copy of your macro and steps to reproduce what you witnessed? I'd be happy to see if the same thing happens on my system. FWIW I've never seen a variable ever appear under a wrong type.

Thanks, I'll have a go tomorrow afternoon Cory. But from what you say I suspect it's down to me, so I'll do some more methodical tests.

Cory,

 

I've been unsuccessful in reproducing that behaviour, so reckon it must have been due to some carelessness of mine. ;)
